MUSICAL TRIPLE BILL

MUBI Special

Chicago

Rob Marshall United States, 2002

The modern musical: Rob Marshall’s catchy, improbable Oscar winner is a 2000s vision of a hit 70s musical adapted from a wildly popular Jazz Age play (made on film first silently by DeMille, then by a frisky Ginger Rogers). Catherine Zeta-Jones snagged an Oscar and John C. Reilly brings us to tears.

Bugsy Malone

Alan Parker United Kingdom, 1976

Our musical weekend jumps two decades and boy, have times changed! Hollywood is now New Hollywood, with new filmmakers: Alan Parker, making his debut, would later tackle such hip projects as Midnight Express and Pink Floyd The Wall. The genre is re-invented again: kids as gangsters! So much fun.

Guys and Dolls

Joseph L. Mankiewicz United States, 1955

Sing all weekend long with a triple bill of musicals! We begin with a Hollywood classic: Joseph L. Mankiewicz candy-colored and deep shadowed adaptation of the stage hit. Brando, Sinatra (as Nathan Detroit!) and Jean Simmons, what more could you ask for? The artifice is supreme, the effect charming.
